At Big Grove Tavern, we celebrate the true sense of the word tavern. The heart and soul of a community, the tavern is a warm and welcoming place bringing together both visitors and locals. It is somewhere to share a pint of ale or a wholesome meal with your neighbor, a place that welcomes all regardless of your position or status.<br /><br />It is in this tradition that we bring you Big Grove Tavern. Our mission is to source local and farm fresh ingredients whenever possible – not only to create delicious dishes but to help support our neighbors. <br /><br />Our name comes from a large stand of trees called, “The Big Grove,” which offered shelter from the wide open prairie skies during the earliest days of our community. Now known as Busey Woods, you can still see the remnant of Big Grove in Urbana today. Whether you’re from Champaign, Urbana, the University, the surrounding towns or a visitor –ALL are welcome at Big Grove. <br /><br />Eat, drink and think local. <br />

Opened in 2001, bacaro sets the standard for fine dining in the Champaign-Urbana area. The contemporary and minimal interior features a sleek full service wine bar and lounge. In addition, a semi-private back room can accommodate larger parties. Chefs Thad Morrow and Drew Starkey work with over 12 local and sustainably driven farms, and the eclectic menu reflects the cultivation of these partnerships. Bacaro's "Market Monday", a weekly prix fixe dinner menu inspired by the local Farmer's Market, invites guests to enjoy the tastes and flavors of the season. The knowledgeable and polite staff can guide any guest through the menu and the extensive wine list.
